I needed laparoscopic gallbladder surgery and Dr Chamberlain and his staff were competent, friendly, helpful and willing to get me in quickly. I called on Tuesday and had surgery on Thursday. He answered my questions and explained the surgery at the consultation visit in his office the day before. He is personable and easy to talk to. My surgery was a success. I owe a big thank you to Dr. Chamberlain and his great staff.

Excellent surgeon. Skillful, knowledgeable, and also personable. Explored all possible options with me, and explained to me about the process. Marked the correct side prior to surgery to avoid error. Met with my family prior to the surgery and after surgery. His staff members were very nice and followed up with several phone calls after the surgery. All in all what was important to me was his skill level to do the job and he did an excellent job. God bless him! PS: I was very anxious a

My doctor in Idaho gave me Dr. Chamberlain‘s name even though I had had surgery in another state so I was concerned because my incision was not looking right his office took me right in . He put my mind at ease since I am not from the area . I then had to see him again the following week because we weren’t sure what was going on with my incision. The second time I saw him he ran a culture to make sure he wasn’t missing anything. The office staff were so nice I felt Very comfortable.

When I had my gallbladder surgery, he informed me well on what was expected pre-surgery, what he was going to do during the surgery, and post surgery. He also checked up on me two weeks after it was removed, and he was knowledgeable on what he was doing. I was very comfortable with him and would definitely recommend him to other people.

When it was discovered that I needed hernia surgery, Dr. Chamberlain's office was contacted and the circumstances were explained to them. An appointment was scheduled for the next Monday and surgery on Tuesday. Dr. Chamberlain took the time to explain about the surgery and even met with me the day of surgery. The followup office visit was great. He explained what I could and could not do while I was healing. I would definitely recommend him to friends. I would use him for future surgery.
